OnLive is live again and this time it is expanding its reach with CloudLift. Rather than limiting yourself to playing streamed games, this new subscription-based service allows you to download games when possible and stream them when needed.
After repeatedly teasing the functionality, and probably receiving endless questions, Koush, or Koushik Dutta, has finally announced a beta version of his Mirror for Android app. The highlight of this release is, of course, the ability to mirror a user's Android device to a TV via Chromecast.
Nickelodeon has had well over a dozen apps available in the Play Store, and as of today, there is yet another. This latest is simply called "Nick" and it has arrived with full episode streaming. The app is free to download and also free to use, though, this isn't one that is going to make the cord cutting crowd happy.
Koushik Dutta has just pushed an update to his AllCast streaming app and this one's a doozy. Not only does it now sport a new user interface design, the app has also gained the ability to stream photos from the newly released Muzei live wallpaper app.
Plex has just announced an update to its media player system that will give users something to enjoy this weekend. While there are new features across the board, bulk of the update revolves around enhancements to its Chromecast support.
The latest update for the pro version of TuneIn Radio has landed in the Play Store. This time around the update includes a few fixes, some smaller tweaks and adjustments, as well as a new option for those looking to record audio. TuneIn Radio Pro now allows users to record audio directly to a memory card.
After just revealing its jack-of-all-trades Multi-Console box last month, Xtreamer is once again outing a new Android-powered device designed to connect to your TV. This time, however, the Xtreamer SideWinder4 is more interested in a focused watching experience than playing games.
Koush took to his Google+ page last week offering a meme-style image teasing Android to Chromecast mirroring. Given what we have seen from Koush in the past, there really wasn't much reason to think he couldn't, or wasn't working on such functionality. But at the same time, all he was offering was that meme-style image asking "what if I told you…I could mirror Android to Chromecast."
Google released the Chromecast SDK a short while back and that prompted a few app updates. One of those apps was AllCast, which comes courtesy of Koushik Dutta. The AllCast update was sort of expected, given we had already seen that functionality added, then removed in the past. But perhaps a bit more interesting, a new teaser is mentioning the possibility of being able to mirror Android on a Chromecast.
Dayframe, now at version 2.0, is just one of those apps that has taken advantage of the newly released Cast SDK. Unfortunately, it seems that it might have gotten too excited and is now being asked to pull out Chromecast support temporarily.
